sweetness and light

7 Aug

oh, my last.


my baby doll.

the girls

my sweetness and light.

sparkles in her eyes

tomorrow, you turn 1.


as i sit to write i almost feel like my words can’t express just how much i love you.

we all love you.


my bonnie blue butler.

bonnie blue butler

when i look in those (still) blue eyes of yours i see myself like i never have before. the deep sapphire mirrors my own & i get lost in space & time. it’s surreal to see so much of myself in another.

soaking her in

in you.

up close and personal

my buttercup.

eyes open

my miss james.

miss james

my mj.


there’s so much i could say about you. like how you love shoes & socks. anyone’s shoes & socks. you just want them on your feet. right. now!

or how much you adore your big brother enough to counter the scorn he gets from above.


or how much you love your daddy & perk up anytime you hear his baritone, no matter how quiet or how far away.


you tie us up nicely, you do.

night night

you made us 6.

the fam

i love you, my baby.

my last.

my sweetness and light.

    Gah! the cutest baby – happy birthday!

    It is hard to see such cuteness – tugs on my uterus even though I am done! {sorry if that sounds weird}
